Innovative design, sleek shape and profile, refined interior decoration, friendly, intimate atmosphere: French designers and decorators have managed to give this ship a unique style and veritable signature of its own. Combinations of fine materials, colours and tones harmoniously livened up with touches of bright colour, elegant lines, discreet and subtle refinement… everything has been designed to create a unique atmosphere onboard, a veritable personality: the chic style and naturally relaxing ambiance of a veritable private yacht.
Elegance and intimacy
Faithful to its desire to always maintain a certain kind of lifestyle onboard, PONANT once again places the emphasis on elegance and intimacy by keeping the number of staterooms limited: just 132 staterooms!
